The BMW X5


Comfort and functionality in the BMW X5.

Driving pleasure is also a question of comfort. In the BMW X5, you can enjoy the utmost seating comfort, perfect soundtracks and the very best entertainment at all times.



Loads of room and room to load: Transporting heavy or bulky objects is no problem in the BMW X5 – thanks to a variety of practical and space-saving features.

Both on the inside and on the outside, the BMW X5 is extremely versatile. For example, with the dual-section tailgate: The upper tailgate swings up high and allows smaller, lighter objects to be conveniently stowed and removed. The lower tailgate creates a platform flush with the load compartment floor when open, allowing luggage to be set down before being loaded.

Versatility is just as prominent in the spacious interior, too. The rear seats can be folded down in a ratio of 40:20:40, ensuring that the space available can be maximised for passengers and luggage alike. Small objects can be accommodated in the optional storage package, which includes a glasses compartment, bottom liners for the front and rear door pockets, as well as hooks, nets and lashing rails with eyelets in the luggage compartment.




The trailer tow hitch can be electrically adjusted and folded away entirely under the rear apron. It also includes trailer stability control. The maximum trailer load is 3,500 kg, depending on the engine fitted.



Regardless of where you sit in the BMW X5, you’ll always be in the premium seats – thanks to the elevated seating position at the front and the seemingly unlimited flexibility at the rear.

The driver and front-seat passenger in the BMW X5 can enjoy not only the X typical elevated seating position, but also the optional comfort seats. The upper backrest segment, backrest width, thigh support and headrest height can all be adjusted electrically in order to reduce tenseness and fatigue to enhance seating comfort.

The rear seats can be folded down in 40:20:40 split, in accordance with how many passengers or luggage items need to be transported. Luggage space can be extended up to a generous 1,870 litres.

The optional comfort seats at the rear have particularly comfortable upholstery and are individually adjustable in several ways. For example, the backrest tilt angle of the two outer seats can be set to six different positions covering a total range of ten degrees. The comfort seats can also be shifted by 80 millimeters forwards or backwards in a 60:40 split. This allows for more knee or luggage space if required. The rear backrest can also be folded down in its entirety in a 40:20:40 split.

Even more flexibility is offered by the third row of seats, consisting of two individually foldable seats that face the direction of travel.



Thanks to its new Dirac Dimensions signal processing, the Bang & Olufsen high-end surround sound system creates an open and lively atmosphere with exceptional acoustics. The incredible sound is created by 16 loudspeakers with a 1,200 W output, including a centre speaker that automatically extends from the dashboard. The centre speaker is a mid-range speaker and is equipped with Acoustic Lens Technology, which ensures an even sound quality on all seats. The system offers the choice of two sound settings: “Studio” for flawless sound and “Expanded”, which creates the impression of a larger acoustic space. The audiovisual experience is rounded off with the illumination of individual loudspeakers.



Innovative and easy to operate – the Comfort access system makes it possible to open all vehicle doors and start the engine without having to actively use the car key. The key, which may be in a trouser pocket or briefcase, is automatically recognised upon approaching the car and the tailgate can also be opened and closed without contact. After the doors are automatically unlocked (including the tailgate), the engine can be started with the push of the Start/Stop button.

The package also includes vicinity illumination of the front and rear exterior door handles.



The Multifunctional Instrument Display with black panel technology and a screen diagonal of 10.25" provides a highly impressive visualisation of the driving experience.
At the same time, it helps the driver to concentrate on the road ahead by displaying relevant information and prevents distraction.

Three different modes and their specific characteristics – each of which have their own colour scheme and graphic style – can be displayed in the instrument cluster: Comfort, ECO PRO and Sport modes. While Comfort Mode largely retains the appearance familiar up to now, blue tones dominate the display in ECO PRO Mode, in which the new EfficientDynamics and Bonus Range displays aid the driver in achieving the most efficient driving style possible. Sport Mode, in contrast, is recognisable by its red colours, and includes performance information.

The Multifunctional Instrument Display also allows navigational information to be displayed, including tips from the Route-Ahead Assistant, as well as lists from the entertainment and telephone functions.


The very best entertainment.

In the rear seats of the BMW X5, the very best entertainment is guaranteed, however long the journey – with the aid of the optional Rear-seat entertainment Professional.

This equipment comprises two separate 9.2" colour screens (tilt-adjustable) and a DVD drive. Depending on the equipment fitted, passengers can remote-control functions for TV, radio, DVD changer, navigation (independent of the driver) and – with ConnectedDrive – the internet. Connections are available for MP3 players and games consoles.

And, to prevent the driver being distracted by noises at the rear, it is also possible to connect wireless headphones.
